The First Design Festival of its Kind

The show had its debut in 2020, when just outside of COVID lockdown we created a talks programme. 

September 2021, saw its first full opening in Kings Cross during the London Design Festival, with an exciting 4 days programme which included:

  • The Sustainable Design Exhibition: showcasing cutting edge products, technologies and materials
  • The Botanical Market: selling plants, organic food and products
  • Barbara Chandler’s Green Grads exhibition: showcasing up and coming stars in the world of sustainable design
  • Sleeping in Nature: installation and bar in association with Out of the Valley
  • The Planted Unearthed talks programme: engaging thought leaders and practitioners with the key show themes of sustainable design, wellbeing and urban greening

The programme of talks were held in front of a live audience in a stunning external green walled studio, and showcased across social media channels.
Audiences were drawn from the fields of architecture, interior design, landscape design, developers, investors and building stakeholders.
